30th scroll yesterday, 2 away from death lotus chest. Failing the adventurers resources to compensate, seems good enough trade for me :P

 

Now split between Jade and Cherrywood voyages

So...

 

I'm at the point where I have all the steel ship upgrades and a bit of spare cherrywood and jade.

 

Most of the steel building upgrades are useless since they give bonuses to one stat in favour of another. Since there is no steel seafaring hull or mast, moving on from the seafaring shipwright seems counterproductive.

 

What's the optimal end game setup for the totems? I assume it would be the jade statues (gives more trade resources) but it seems like rounding issues might make them totally pointless.

 

Alternatively I suppose I could get the telescope (increases chance of scroll missions) but that's also suboptimal since I would have to replace them eventually when I get all the scrolls.

Might want to wait on building totems until Mod Edam rolls out any changes he's planned for them.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

You need the steel shipwright/lodgings upgrade for max port score so might as well go for those imo. Mod Edam has taken note of the idea that seafaring deserves a compensation for not having shipwright/hull at the highest tier and no bow items whatsoever. Whether that means we're going to get something... maybe.

I didn't see anything about shipwright mentioned. I mean sure its a tier lower but stats-wise it is the same.

I knew he'd mentioned about the ship score imbalance thought where SF loses out 200 on hulls and 800 on bow items.

Do you need to buy all options of each building upgrade at least once to max port score?

 

I'm a pretty long way off from even considering throwing around resources so frivolously but still...

At somewhere around 6-9 jade voyages a day (maybe 8-12 when I get that 4th ship) it's probably going to take me another month to even reach Pincers -.-

If you buy one option, and then another option, is the first option you bought free to switch back to? Or do you always have to fork over all of those resources to switch between them?

Poor planning on my part has made this more of a grind for me than it had to be. Now I have ~3600 bamboo to get for various building upgrades and I'm less than 3/4 of the way to the bowl. Still, considering I don't have a computer here and have to brave the arctic (Read: Minnesotan) winter to use public computers I'm not doing too bad. Really the only thing I seriously regret is not getting scrolls faster.

According to Whynotnow, yes. That's one reason seafaring is imbalanced. Not all buildings seem to be equal in score, for example the Luxurious bar awards 20 points.

Can anyone explain to me where this obsession with Port Scores has arisen from? I don't mean in this thread, but everyone, in general, seems to b overly concerned with them. Aside from titles, aren't they useless?

E-penis. To some, that is most important.

 

On a related note, I'm concerned that my Port score number is small, can anyone recommend some size improving techniques?

Lol.

 

Story voyages are the best thing for a large port score!

[hide]gallery_173254_290_515335.png[/hide]

 

Kidding aside, port score is possibly getting added to the hiscores. It's one of the suggestions that Mod Edam took in and is looking at.

Ugh, icon mechanics.

 

If I get a whaler icon, that will reduce my chances of getting another adventurer right?

 

So if I got 5 different icons I basically have achieved nothing other than making one adventurer rarer?

 

Some of these building upgrades seem really poorly thought out.

You can only have three icons, and it's definitely worth building a few because often it's better to focus on a subset of adventurers. For example for the triple stories, or if you're hunting plate etc., icons will boost the chances of getting the right adventurers.

Edit: also don't forget the chance to attract two adventurers isn't 100%.

 

@TheRealSycz2k: I'd get the rudder, judge of dice (if possible) and a couple of basic crew first.

Just remember that failing a mission still gives the same distance as succeeding. If you're looking to get to pincers asap 4th ship is your best bet. Getting crew now for more successes will only get you more jade (which quickly becomes useless), at a cost of distance.


From the empty days of hope, deny the darkness
Follow my voice, we'll run far away from here

If only to hide, to escape this life
And live forever, forever in the sun
